On my 03 Rubicon I have 285/75R16 MT/R's that were on there when I bought the Jeep in 2009. They are getting tired and hard, p/o didn't really rotate them properly so they are cupped too, a bit of tread life left but are getting quite noisy on the highway and on the way to the trail.
Jeep is mostly parked, used on nice days for a spin or long weekends wheeling trips any time of year. Lots of highway kilometers and long FSR drives to get to the trails.
Having a two year old and a wife going wheeling with me this summer, it's too loud back there for them!
I am considering going with a skinnier 255/85R16 to go on to the moabs. Can you guys comment on road noise etc and if you feel any difference in wheeling capability. A lighter load range would be nice too since E is overkill imho. But I do like the fact that I haven't had one puncture or a bead seating problem with the MT/R's.
I air down the MT/R's to around 10psi wheeling and on road they are at around 28.
I was considering the KM2's.
Thanks a lot.
